This was an amazing last minute find! This hotel has been renovated and is clean, bright, and the staff was friendly. The room was clean & spacious; the beds were super comfortable and the room was quiet (and the hotel was pretty full, being a holiday weekend)! They also had a pool and that looked very inviting even though we...

This Holiday Inn is modern, spotless and either new or newly renovated. Staff was very cordial and responsive upon check-in and check-out. Fitness Center was well equipped with 2 treadmills, recumbent bike, free weights, exercise ball, etc. rooms were very comfortable, roomy, and quiet. Pool and hot tub are small but indoors. There is a small restaurant off the lobby....

The property was extremely clean and the room was quiet. The wireless service needs improvement. The HVAC unit was confusing to operate which led to some discomfort with temperature, but I did not request assistance (too tired to deal with it) so it could definitely have been operator error. There was complimentary infused water and coffee in the lobby. The...

We loved this hotel. So clean and nicely decorated. The staff was very cordial and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast in the hotel restaurant, especially the mini waffles! Thanks for the coupons. Our first time at a Holiday Inn instead of Holiday Inn Express and we we really enjoyed it and will chose a Holiday Inn again.

To preface my review, my friend and I were traveling to St. Louis and were driving on a 9 1/2 hour drive. We drove until we both could not keep our eyes open. With that said, we needed somewhere to stay at an offramp from the interstate leading to our destination. This Holiday Inn happened to be it. We did...

Friendly staff, excellent hotel restaurant, clean restrooms, rooms and pool area and very comfortable beds. Our family of 6 needed a place to eat, get energy out and rest in between our travels. Our children ate free in restaurant which serves until 10pm before heading to pool/hot tub (open till midnight). Great night sleep followed by an amazing made to...

We stayed here last year and decided to try it again. Check in was not smooth as we were given incorrect room keys twice but the rest of the stay made up for the inconvenience. We ate dinner and breakfast there and the food is reasonably priced and better than any chain nearby. My son enjoyed the indoor pool. The...

We stayed in one of their queen suites, which was spacious with a separate sitting area and sofa bed and two queen beds.

Stayed one night. Room was nice, had the TV channel list handy (personal pet peeve), wi-fi easy to connect and plenty fast. Water and coffee in the lobby. The workout room overlooks the pool so it doesn't feel so closed in.
